The Price of Temporizing

Healing Iraq has an important discussion of what the sudden stand-down with Muqtada as-Sadr may mean.

It is important to show that fighting us and our allies has consequences, especially when we split Iraq once (in 1991), after encouraging a Shi'i uprising, at an enormous cost in human lives, and our departure is just a matter of time.

In the long run it would have saved lives to have crushed Falluja. The same with Muqtada.
